Seeing beyond vision loss since 1918

CNIB is a registered charity, passionately providing community-based support, knowledge and a national voice to ensure blind and partially sighted Canadians have the confidence, skills and opportunities to fully participate in life. 

To do that, we work with clients in their own homes and communities, providing a range of programs and services that help people overcome the challenges of sight loss, increase their independence and achieve their goals. We also advocate for equal access and an inclusive society, and strive to reduce unnecessary vision loss by promoting the effective prevention, diagnosis and treatment of eye disease.

With 900 employees and 10,000 volunteers working out of offices across the country, CNIB serves thousands of Canadians of all ages. ..
